Description:
Island Girl Power is…
A local Prevention Program focusing on offering positive activities & role models for young girls and their families. Island Girl Power was originally founded in the Spring of 2002 by Ayuda Foundation (a 501C-3 Non-Profit Organization) The Guam Program was partially modeled after a U.S. National Initiative that began in 1998 and ended in 2003. IGP continued on with the local program to work on addressing our increasingly high rates of Teen Pregnancy, Suicide, Substance and Sexual abuse rates. IGP is not a Government program and is funded by Cooperative Mini-Grants from Public Health (Rape Prevention), Corporate Sponsors (DFS, Community First Credit Union, Etc.), Foundation Grants (Pacificare), Donations and Fundraising Projects (rummage sales and car washes).

Our mission is to decrease the occurrence of teen pregnancy, suicide, substance and sexual abuse. Empowering our young ladies to make healthy lifestyle choices, Encouraging Positive self esteem with Mentors and Role Models, while Inspiring Cultural and Community Pride.

Vision Statement

Our vision is to create an environment where girls ages 7 to 14 can feel safe and confident in their ability to make healthy lifestyle choices, and create positive change in her life and others. We want girls to know just how special they are here at Island Girl Power! We also emphasize the importance of Positive Role Models and Volunteering in our community.
